Release: http://www.aalto.fi/en/current/news/2017-05-03-004/ Computers learn to understand humans better by modelling them 03.05.2017 Computers are able to learn to explain the behavior of individuals by tracking their glances and movements. Researchers from Aalto University, University of Birmingham and University of Oslo present results paving the way for computers to learn psychologically plausible models of individuals simply by…
Press release: http://www.aalto.fi/en/current/news/2017-04-05-002/ Project page: http://userinterfaces.aalto.fi/scatterplot_optimization/ Algorithms can now exploit models and measures of human perception to generate scatterplot designs. Picture represents scatterplot of pressure and temperature variables from the Hurricane Isabel dataset. The standard design (left) loses fidelity and requires manual adjustment, but the optimized design (right) automatically adapts to the data.
Our doctoral student Janin Koch presented at the AAAI 2017 SPRING SYMPOSIA at Palo Alto on designing the User Experience for Machine learning systems. Check out the sketch notes by @chrisnoessel summarizing her talk on how designers can collaborate with Optimizers and AI systems. More info

Our group has 8 full papers at the upcoming CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2017, with one or several people from our group as authors. They cover exciting topics, ranging from machine learning techniques for inverse modeling, to modeling learning of new UI layouts to design implications for practical eye gaze applications, and more.
In the first week of February we have two distinguished speakers visiting University of Helsinki and Aalto University: Rosalind Picard from MIT Media Lab and Hans Gellersen from University of Lancester
